About

WHO IS EL GATO NEGRO? 

The El Gato Negro comic book tells the story of Francisco Guerrero, a social worker by day, and a crime fighting vigilante at night who battles drug lords and criminals along the Texas border in the Rio Grande Valley. He was given his moniker by his grandfather Augustin, who was a luchador (Mexican Masked Wrestler) by the same name who also fought crime on the side back in the 70’s. 

Augustin was originally going to pass the mantle to Francisco’s best friend Mario, but Mario, who was a border patrolman, was killed in the line of duty. Now Francisco battles the forces of the Texas/Mexico underworld and especially that of Boss Ochoa and his ruthless son Armando Ochoa, also known as El Graduado (The Graduate).

THE STORY OF EL GATO NEGRO: PREY 

In this prequel short film directed by Michael S Moore (Cornered) Angel Reyes and her father Ramon are in grave danger when some of drug cartel lord El Graduado’s men come to collect on some merchandise, and when those items come up missing, only the return of a legendary Texas superhero can save them…

THE IMPACT WE’RE GOING TO MAKE: 

In a time where superheroes such as Captain America, Iron, Man, Superman, and Wonder Woman are dominating cinema, there hasn’t been any latino superheroes to share the screen. The only Hispanic characters in Superhero films are relegated to being sidekicks. It’s long overdue for a Hispanic hero to share the big screen.

The quality of this short film will go a long way to deciding if El Gato Negro will get his shot at the big screen or as a possible TV series, and whether we can get investors to fund an actual full-blown feature film!

WHAT WE NEED: 

The main production itself has been completed, and we are asking for $3000 that goes toward the post-production work: we need to pay our editor (who worked on Hollywood productions such as The Blind Side and We Bought A Zoo) and our sound engineer, as well as the rental of facilities so that we can do some ADR work with the actors. There are small scenes where VFX may be needed, so funds will go there as well. This will present our film in the best way possible! 

Risks and challenges

The premiere nights will depend on what festivals we are able to get into and the rules of those festivals in regards to previous public screenings, but we will work around them and send notifications once the dates are locked down.
